HSV2 Results

Recent HSV2 antibody tests were positive. I have only had one sexual partner for 32 years. My husband tested neg (he had an affair ending six months ago). He tested pos for chlamydia. My results are not back. I am very confused about HSV2 results.

I can best help you if you post your actual numeric results - e.g. hsv1 igg 5.9 and hsv2 igg 1.2 or whatever they are. that way we can be sure you were tested properly and see if you need any additional confirmatory testing done.

cont.  After giving me results, my doctor told me that the tests mean that I was exposed to the virus, and it is possible that I had been exposed over thirty years ago. My lack of outbreaks is because I have a very strong immune system, and I do not need to worry about infecting my husband. No medicine, no precautions. How could this be?
I am waiting on second test results.

No. I have lived in the States all my life except from 1994-1997 when we lived in Germany.

then you need to seek out better herpes igg blood testing if there weren't any periods in those numbers. The igg testing you have listed isn't one we recommend to have done so helping you rule out false positives and commenting on the accuracy of the test isn't something I can help you with.

There were no decimal points, and I was confused by that. I will have results from second test tomorrow or Tuesday. Thank you so much.

Second test contained whole number results as well...results went up from 159 to 169 on igg. Is this an accurate test? Paperwork states it is Elisa. ?

it's a brand of test that isn't as accurate as the ones we frequently recommend - the captia and herpeselect tests.  I really can't help you much with your results since the testing you are getting done isn't very good :(
